Outdoor Living

Hamptons inspired backyard

With the growing trend of outdoor living and alfresco entertaining, it’s no surprise that the Hamptons style is one of the biggest trends in 2018. With land sizes shrinking, acres of manicured lawns that we typically associate with Hamptons may not be possible, but homeowners can re-create the look with a laidback Australian twist to suit their outdoor space.

The Hamptons look is all about structured details and layers, so whether it is a small courtyard, pool area or an alfresco room, add life and colour with greenery. “For lush green turf invest in some new Sir Walter or if you’ve already got the lawn, create a beautiful leafy outlook with sculpted hedges. Buxus balls are great and will allow you to create different heights and levels in your garden. For classic flowers, think hydrangeas, orchids and gardenias,” suggested Jason.

A borderline of hedges will provide a grand boundary as well as offer privacy. If a pool is part of your Hamptons design, don’t forget the styling which can be simple cushions and a smart use of colours, or a rewarding splurge on a statement furniture piece from Kosh Living.

The perfect place to admire your lawn, appreciate your Hamptons garden and enjoy refreshing iced tea is from a modern coastal courtyard with a touch of Hamptons,. To get the look, try Adbri Masonry’s Euro Classic pavers in a light colour that will complement your floral selections. “These pavers look great and because they are slip resistant, they’re perfect for pool surrounds and wet areas too,” explained Jason.
